Horseback riding can be an extremely enjoyable endeavor when it is with a good horse, in the right setting and with the right company.
Our horses, most born here, are trained from young foals as they become accustomed to their keepers and riders. Because of the gentle approach to training, horses enjoy the company of humans and often seek attention from our clients and team. Each horse has a “fan club” among our regular customers and enjoys special attention when they visit us.
Our guides are qualified riding instructors living in the area who know the mountain like the back of their house. They know the character of each horse and have the ability to judge the level of riders well. In safe hands and fresh company, riders learn facts about the local flora and fauna, as well as the history of the area.
The ranch is located at the foot of Mount Rusaliite in the Rila Mountains. Forest trails begin here, winding among many other trails leading to popular areas such as Gergeva Rock and Godlev Chapel. But the routes also lead us to hidden magical places like the Chobanský Vir and the Avramov Stone.
The varied forest roads and shortcuts give us more than one route to the same place, depending on the time we have and the views we want to see. The fabulous views from the high ridges are breathtaking, the berries for us and the fresh grass for the horses justify the long ride, and the hidden forest lodges give us shelter when the weather takes an unexpected turn.
